Deconstruction of the temporary parliament building: Mission completed

At the end of 2022, the refurbishment of the Austrian Parliament in Vienna was successfully completed, and in January 2023, the overall refurbished Parliament was ceremoniously opened.

The temporary parliament – which served as an alternative location at Heldenplatz – had thus fulfilled its function and could be disassembled and completely deconstructed this summer. In the sense of sustainability and value retention, the modular components of Lukas Lang Building Technologies find further use in other projects.
